Contact pgp.mit.edu or other keyservers and attempt to get the e-mail address, expiration date, and other info about a pgp key ID. Search query would be "pgp key [ID]" or "pgp key [e-mail]".

To help me understand the need can you tell me about a time you used a search engine to find a person’s key in the past?

- Why were you looking for the key?
- What did you do with it once you found it?
- What was frustrating about the experience?
- What was pleasing?

Nevermind. Those source URLs wouldn’t meet the spice API requirements.

I've been trying to make this into a Fathead by batch importing via GnuPG the dumps from an SKS server, but there are all kinds of errors being thrown right now. SKS servers provide a query interface via the HKP (effectively HTTP) protocol, but the responses aren't JSON.
